Just to be clear, we are NOT limiting the chassis/painted body raffles to just one for each class. We would be thrilled to have as many as possible! Any builders/painters  out there interested in contributing would be most appreciated. PM me for details :)

Dennis Samson of Samson Classics has been kind enough to put together some race prizes for the event. There will be a beautiful BRAND NEW Samson F1 Chassis raffled off on Friday, June 17th. All that are entered in the F1 Class will have a chance to win what I consider one of the best F1 chassis' in retro racing! Thanks very much Dennis for supporting the event :victory:

Just to be clear, all chassis' by Dennis Samson and Tony P will be raffled off to those entered in each class as well as all painted bodies by Steve Koepp, Noose, and any others we gather up before the event. Everyone entered in in a race will have an equal chance to win! The other items will be divided up into Goody Bags which will be sealed and everyone picks a bag without knowing what could be in the bag. It will kind of be like Christmas in June :sun_bespectacled:

All of the people sending merchandise should be commended. What a great event and location. Had a great time in St Martin when I was there. Wish I knew about the slot car track then.

Great combo race/vacation!

On another note, I am going to ship everything I have so far to Miami next week so it gets to Reggie in St Maarten in plenty of time for the race. If there are any other potential race prize sponsors out there that have not shipped yet, please do so as soon as possible. Also we are still accepting Beverage & Food sponsors @ $50 each. PayPal to bschatz1@yahoo.com Thanks again to all that have contributed so far to this event. :good:
